1946 Don PX Convento Seleccion

Out of stock

On September 2nd 2013, our winery Toro Albala is very glad to announce the reviews that our wines received in August 2013 from Robert Parker. Our exclusive PX 1946 vintage has received the highest score, 100 points. Luis Gutierrez, responsible for The Wine Advocate for Spain, Chile and Argentina has scored our wines. In his review, he highlights the complexity and richness in palate and aroma of the 1946 vintage. Luis Gutierrez ‘The 1946 Don PX Convento Seleccion produced with Pedro Ximenez grapes dehydrated under the sun at the time of the end of the second world war, was only bottled in September 2011. This is an extreme wine, my first descriptor was ultra-mega super concentrated. It is unbelievably powerful both in the nose and the palate, full of umami, with sweet cinnamon, Christmas cake, camphor, petrol lemongrass Belgian chocolate and butter. Incredibly complex and rich, sweet, balanced and smooth in the palate, it is both very sweet and somehow salty, and with time it develops a black olive note. It combines the texture of the 1962 and elegance of the 1949. It is as decadent as it gets. 825 bottles were produced. This wines will survive all of us. These wines are kept for generations and offered in very small quantities, but its amazing that you can still buy them…’
